  1. What do you think about our new chessboard? Leave a comment and let us know! Thanks

  2. In Germany we say : "ich habe nur Bahnhof verstanden".

  3. I don't know if the Italian game is such a good idea for beginners lol. Wayyy too much opportunity to blunder. It's too strategic I think

  4. I like the new chessboard😍
    Please andrey more videos about making decision like the ones on your youtube channel

  5. I'm (1600 lichess) playing the 4 knights scotch game if allowed. It's an opening I have been recommended. What do you think about this?

  6. Wood board is an improvement but I think you're better off with a 2D board. 3D boards don't work well for filming IMO. Content is great though!

  7. Make a video on how to do calculate moves in chesss

  8. Hi Andrey! Are you considering some videos on the catalan or tarrasch? Maybe not in the near future but longtermwise

  9. Thanks for movie really fast so i can't keep up. I thought it said for beginners. My bad

  10. Hey thanks Andrey for this useful video. French is my favourite opening. Thanks for your detailed series on the french defense. I really enjoyed it.

  11. How about the Ruy Lopez instead of the Italian for white? Is it worth to play for a 1600 player?

  12. I love Anya Taylor Joy maybe she'll want to marry me if I'm good at chess

  13. You are so first , I don't think this fits for a beginner like me. Thanks anyway

  14. Thanks a lot, nice and clear. That chess board looks fantastic, it'd make you feel you are controlling an army!

  15. Hello, beginner Chess player here. Wanting to learn more so I hoped I could scoop some knowledges.

  16. Question: I gave up playing chess in 1982 when I started working for a software company – no time. Now – with corona – I have "rediscovered" chess. 40 years ago as a club player I used to play the French as black. Now I have the impression that the the French went out of fashion and – to my great surprise – the Italian has become fashionable again after 150 years. Is this correct?

  17. You can improve the quality of your videos by showing text of your important points. But good video overall.

  18. This is for beginners? Um, a little slower, a bit more explanation, etc. I had to click off because I, as a beginner, was lost immediately.

  19. Your videos are amazing! I have learned so much. And I have probably watched this one a dozen times over the past couple months. It's an iterative process for me: watch a video describing some ideas, go play some games and try out whatever I can remember from the video, then watch again and the positions now look familiar so I understand a lot better, go practice more, etc. Now I am going through the beginner path on your website! Such great content. Thanks for doing this! I plan to make a donation through your site soon.

  20. it's 3am how did I get here

  21. I should of joined the chess club. Back in jr high.

  22. Great video – thanks for clearing up a few things for me. Perhaps now I'll finally be able to defeat my 8-year-old son …

  23. what if I go for the Italian opening and move pawn e4 but my opponent doesn't move to e5
    what do I do then?

  24. On the queens gambit one, can’t the pawn at d5 just take the other pawn on c4?
